Okay, show of hands. How many people thought they pulled the forum due to all the dramatic bull shit that gets spewed here?
Another show of hands? How many of you were wandering around like lost puppies wondering where you were gonna go to get your daily fix of Dead conversation?

My hand is up. I was jonesing like a junkie looking for a fix.
I also belong to the "this is my last download, and I'm off the stuff for good club."

They don't care about the forums, emails or threads. It was a database/server thing. Nothing more, nothing less.

I gather that now, but I wanted to know how many other people here jump to conclusions and were feeling like they lost their best friend.
I know I did. You could still upload shows and post reviews to shows but you couldn't post to any forums.
Boy, I was ready to blame somebody for messing up my Sabbath forum.

I thought the same thing at first "oh wow were did my post go" then I clicked on my name and saw that it took. After that started clicking peoples names and doing replys - so we all posted in the dark for a few days

Come on, man, admit that you were behind the whole sinister plot. You hacked into the database and closed this place down until you realized that no one could read your posts unless you opened it back up again.

You evil sonofabitch.

Hey, This took almost as much planning as Orson Wells "War of The Worlds"

It was a test of the Emergency Cryptical Envelopment system . . . and I think it worked pretty good

I thought RSS stood for Righteous Stoned Soldiers.

If you take a dog to the supermaket and it has an accident in the frozen food aisle, do you blame the dog?

Of course not, especially if he's the one paying for the frozen pizza and sausage links. Plus, I've wet myself many a time in the frozen food section. I can commiserate.

There had been much heavier volleys of BS going on before the point went the site went down. I just thought there were bugs in the system. But on the day it did go on the fritz, did anybody else other than I log on and find a completely different format other than how it normally looks?

Are you talking recently or a year+ when the dead forum was created?

I wasn't sure if something happened recently or if you were recalling the initial split/change. I've missed a fair amount of forum time here recently, so I thought maybe something had happened to the site. Sorry for the confusious!

Well, this site was all bunged up earlier this week. For three or four days the page never changed, top thread was about Crazy Show Stories, or something like that, posted by Max Chorak with no replies. Pretty clear something was mucked up. And then I don't know if you hung out here, like, last weekend---maybe before that, I'm not sure, but it was getting REALLY ugly. Just a bunch of rancid, obscene bullshit flying back and forth, purely instigated by some asshole troublemaker who had nothing better to do for days on end than to be an absolute dick.

Glad I missed it all. Thanks for the update. Glad it has settled down.
